We provide a Montessori education for children aged 0–6 years in the beautiful township of Paraparaumu Beach. With lovely calm environments, children learn the ability to take responsibility for their own learning; understanding how to take care of themselves, others and the environment around them. We enjoy modern facilities, stunning outdoor areas, excellent staff to child ratios and quality resources. 

We’re now looking for a centre manager to snap up this opportunity to be part of something special, leading a high-quality Montessori early learning service that has a positive impact on the local community.

This role involves leading and managing the centre team to ensure the highest standards of early learning and care are maintained. Key to success will be your confidence in motivating and inspiring a strong team of dedicated staff and establishing key relationships in the local community. We are looking for an innovative, personable and passionate leader who is ready to get stuck in, right from the word go.
Our successful centre manager will bring:

  • BEd/Dip Tch (ECE) Level 7 and current certification and/or Montessori training
  • Proven success working in a management or leadership position
  • Ability to promote the centre to the local community
  • Ability to set reasonable targets for your team and celebrate when they are achieved
  • Strong administration/financial background would be desirable
  • A ‘can-do’ and positive attitude.

You'll be well-supported by weekly visits and communications from our excellent team of business and professional services managers. Your hard work and commitment will be rewarded with a competitive salary, free healthcare, discounted childcare and much more. 

Come and experience the BestStart difference – with in-house leadership training, ongoing PLD and plenty of growth opportunities, now is the time to advance your career!
